Welcome.

You might want to try one or two weekend trips to identify and workout any bugs. By bugs I mean things that you don’t understand fully AND things missing, broken or problematic with your new RV.

If you can you’ll probably have a better experience for your first real camping trip.

I think you’ll find most experienced RVers try to do this as close to the day they pickup their new RV as possible. Selling dealers have very short memories.

Great advice Creativepart! Our first planned outing is going to be 1.5 hours from home.
We are trying to figure out how /if we can use our little Coleman camping stove and put it to the gas "quick connect" on outside of our camper - so far, cannot find anything on line about that. I think the pressure in the propane line on camper is too low for the little Coleman stove. But cannot locate any adapters that would make it possible, so not sure what type of "outdoor grill" would connect to outside of the Micro Minnie - any thoughts on that point?

Does your Coleman run on those small green propane canisters?

If so it would require removing the regulator on the stove, and buying an adapter and special hose. These are generally available online. Search by stove model number.

The most popular stove is probably the Weber Q series. But still itís not standard to hook it up that way. But adapter kits are available.

When we owned a TT we bought a Camco 5500 grill it mounts to the side of the TT and works standard with the low pressure connection. Hereís another such grill :

We have the Weber grill and rather than be tethered to the side of our RV we purchased a 1 gal propane tank and short hose. The one gal tank lasts a long time and is simple to have refilled. This way we avoid using those green canisters but, donít have to remove the regulator from the grill. We usually put the grill on the picnic table to use it.
